Millie Morris has always been one of the guys. A UC Santa Barbara professor, she’s a female-serial-killer expert who’s quick with a deflection joke and terrible at getting personal. And she, just like her four best guy friends and fellow professors, is perma-single.
So when a routine university function turns into a black tie gala, Mille and her circle make a pact that they’ll join an online dating service to find plus-ones for the event. There’s only one hitch: after making the pact, Millie and one of the guys, Reid Campbell, secretly spend the sexiest half-night of their lives together, but mutually decide the friendship would be better off strictly platonic.
But online dating isn’t for the faint of heart. While the guys are inundated with quality matches and potential dates, Millie’s first profile attempt garners nothing but dick pics and creepers. Enter “Catherine”—Millie’s fictional profile persona, in whose make-believe shoes she can be more vulnerable than she’s ever been in person. Soon “Catherine” and Reid strike up a digital pen-pal-ship...but Millie can’t resist temptation in real life, either. Soon, Millie will have to face her worst fear—intimacy—or risk losing her best friend, forever.
Perfect for fans of Roxanne and She’s the Man, Christina Lauren’s latest romantic comedy is full of mistaken identities, hijinks, and a classic love story with a modern twist. Funny and fresh, you’ll want to swipe right on My Favorite Half-Night Stand.
Another hilarious, sexy, sweet and fun read by the dynamic duo - Christina Lauren. These two never fail in delivering a best-selling romance book! My Favorite Half-Night Stand is about best friends, who find that their one soulmate is the one person in their little group - staring right at you in the face. It just takes time to figure that out.
Mille and her group of best guy friends are close. She's just one of the guys, who all hang out. But the attraction between Mille and Reid is undeniable. They never acted on it, because sleeping with each other can ruin best friend status. But when one "drunken" night, things go farther than these two expected, and it was on of their best nights, without admitting it to each other.
Can we get books on the other friends? I'd love to finish out that group!
